TOPIC: The God Pleaser
SCRIPTURE: These are the generations of Jacob. Joseph, being seventeen years old, was feeding the flock with his brethren; and the lad was with the sons of Bilhah, and with the sons of Zilpah, his father’s wives: and Joseph brought unto his father their evil report. Genesis 37:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Please never respect anyone enough to please them at the expense of pleasing God and yourself.
In life, those who follow the crowd usually get lost in the crowd, but those who take a stand for God stand out in life. It is important to know that your assignment in life is not to see how many people you can please but how much you can please your Maker and be at peace with your actions.
Please, never respect anyone enough to please them at the expense of pleasing God and yourself. You must always take a stand against evil even if you have to stand alone. Stand against evil even if it means standing against your blood relations, or closest friends. This was what made Joseph to stand out in his generation.
Please understand this: The fact that you and your siblings came out of the same womb does not mean you have the same destiny. Having the same father doesn’t mean having the same future. Life is a product of personal adventure. What you do with your life today determines where you find yourself tomorrow.
So, to please other people at the expense of pleasing God makes you a nonentity on earth. Refuse to join those who refuse to take a stand for God so you don’t become a nonentity in life.
Beloved, if you are a political officer holder, do the right thing even if you have to sacrifice a second tenure. Be A God pleaser.
Remember This: Please never respect anyone enough to please them at the expense of pleasing your God and yourself.
